Distributing the Date and Time Picker 6.0 (SP6)


I have a Access app which uses the Date and Time Picker 6.0 (SP6) control, but I can't seem to make this work on my client's computer, where this shows blank.

In VBA on my PC, I have gone trough VBA > Debug > Compile, and it gives me no messages (so I assume that it compiles successfully?), but when I go to my client, its blank, and no installation shield pops up (if its supposed to).

As well, is the Date and Time Picker 6.0 (SP6) a part of the mscomm2.ocx ?  I have also trying manually doing Regserv32 on this with no results.

Any ideas?

The date and time picker is part of MSCOMCT2.OCX  not mscomm2.ocx  so make sure you have the correct OCX registered
Also, please make sure that your clients have the same exact version of MSCOMCT2.OCX as you or this can lead to problems.

jet, how can I check if MSCOMCT2.OCX is indeed registered on a machine?
From Access, go in to a module so you can load the Visual Basic editor.  At the top select Tools -> References.  Make sure "Microsoft Windows Common Controls - 2" is checked and that there are no missing references.  

Also, from a DOS prompt, type in          regsvr32 mscomct2.ocx     and you should get a message saying Succeeded.  Otherwise, there is a problem with the mscomct2.ocx file you have installed.
